Regional Soccer Body Approves Reforms After Corruption Arrests

  • Concacaf to add independent non-voting board members
  • Group's last several presidents charged with corruption

Concacaf, which oversees soccer from Panama to Canada, approved a package of changes Thursday in an attempt to reform its top management after several of its last presidents were caught up in corruption probes.

The Miami-based body will add three non-voting independent members to its board, and limit members to 12 years on the panel. The reforms were approved unanimously in a vote in Zurich, where members were gathered for the election of a new president of the sport’s global governing body.
